guard. abc7 news reporter kira klapper is live in the courtroom. kira, dzhokhar tsarnaev is not yet able to communicate with detectives? >> that's right. they said he can't speak because he has severe throat injuries. authorities hope he will be able to talk. they have so many questions. they want to know if anyone else was involved in the alleged attack, zach har -- dzhokhar and his brother orchestrated. he was found in a boat hiding in this yard. a row bat whose brought in to remove the tarp out of fear he was wearing an explosive fight. but he was likely injured from the gunfight the night before when his brother died. this morning agents are anxiously wait to go question the man that sparked the nearly week long manhunt that ended in a spray of bullets. >> i think all the law enforcement professionals are hoping, for a host of reasons, that the suspect survives because we have a million questions. >>> a special federal interrogation team is on standby at the medical center where tsarnaev and many of his alleged victims are being treated. within the last hour we learned federal prosec
're live in e eldorado, texas. at this hour, the justice department is preparing charges for dzhokhar tsarnaev. meanwhile there's a lot of talk on the sunday morning shows about the investigation. let's take a look at some of the comments from this morning in this sunday night edition of our quotes of the week. boston mayor tom menino has wrapped up the entire boston bombing case into one sound bite in abc's "this week." >> all the information i have is they acted alone, these two individuals, the brothers. the older brother is dead now. we have a second one at beth israel hospital in very serious condition. we don't know if we'll ever be able to question the individual. >> mike: don't know if that sounds familiar, but seems like after every major crime, whether it's the kennedy assassination, the assassination of martin luther king jr., we always are pretty quick to come out and say that it was the lone nut, in this case it's a couple of them. now the truth is we don't know if they were the only ones involved. not at this point. there were some news reports that said, oh, they were a
and low financing are available right now during the polaris xp sales event. >> mike: dzhokhar tsarnaev has been portrayed as a nice guy, somebody that wouldn't hurt a fly, even a follower of his demanding older brother. is he being portrayed as a victim before he even gets to trial. we're back with judge andrew napolitano. judge, you expect the defense will say, it wasn't his fault, he was just a kid, his brother duped him into it. is that going to be effective given the heinous nature of the crime? >> i do expect the defense would say -- it's called a defense of diminished capacity, yeah, he did this, but wasn't of clear mind when he did it, led along by somebody else, somebody else was actually controlling his will, not in a zombie-like way, but because of his relationship to his brother. will it work? depends on the jury. if it does work, it would save him from execution. he could still be convicted of some lesser offense than use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill people, but he'd go to jail for the rest of his life rather than be executed. >> mike: i can only imagine the outr
their respect. dzhokhar tsarnaev is at boston's hospital. he is on vaent late for and handcuffed to his hospital bed so he won't be able to pull his breathing tube out. he has injuries to his head neck legs and hand. he can't speak because of the neck wounds and may have also sustained hearing loss from the flash bang grenades authorities used. but he is providing written answers where necessary. they are asking whether anyone was helping he or his brother commit these crimes and whether there are anymore undetonated bombs. it is likely they did have plans to carry out more attacks based on the remaining sarsal of weapons. >> the two suspects were armed with handguns at the seen of the shootout and there were more explosive devices. i believe that the only reason that someone would have those in their possession was to further attack people and cause more -- more death and destruction. >> michael: and just how much death and destruction the suspects meant to cause will be part of the government's case against tsarnaev. today the white house announced he will be t
dzhokhar tsarnaev. a federal magistrate came to the suspect's home for his initial court appearance this afternoon. he was advised of his rights and charged with one count of using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and one count of malicious destruction of property resulting in death. the charges carry the possibility of the death penalty or life in prison. the public defender's office is representing the criminal and the evidence is laid out, including video of the suspect walking away from his backpack moments before the second explosion and evidence found in his dorm room. so how will a case against this alleged bomber be prosecuted? joining me now are former judge and prosecutor catherine krier and kelly curry, who supervised a number of terrorism krcases. catherine, the evidence here seems overwhelming. do you think prosecutors will seek the death penalty? >> i think it's too early to tell and it ought to be too early to tell. massachusetts is not one of the states that has the death penalty and the federal government has been somewhat respectful in whether or not
about disclosures yesterday about what dzhokhar tsarnaev had to say to investigators about there not being others involved, that they did this on their own and they were motivated by islamic fervor rather than being directed by an outside group. obviously fbi is going to check that very closely to see whether that story holds up and whether there were any outside directors to this. but it is worth noting that that actually was not in his interest to say that because at this point given the overwhelming evidence that the government has the only leverage he has to avoid the death penalty or the strongest leverage he has is to give up somebody else and point the finger and say as part of a deal i will tell you about these outsiders, outside groups, other terrorists in the area. and by saying nobody else was involved it doesn't help him in that regard. he may change that story over time. we'll have to wait and see. immediately that is one aspect of this. >> let me ask you about that because as mike was pointing out it doesn't seem to be in his interest. it could be a red herrin
dzhokhar tsarnaev is being held under heavy guard waiting to charge him. his injuries are serious, including a bullet wound to his neck that investigators say may have been self-inflicted. >> they say it appears from the wound that he might have stuck a gun in his mouth and fired. >> reporter: that could have happened when police found him hiding in a boat in watertown friday night. investigators released infrared video that shows him inside. >> i think all of the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survived because we have a million questions. >> reporter: they include determining if johar and his brother tamerlan tsarnaev who was killed friday in a shoot out with police were so called lone wolves or had connections to a terrorist organization. the new york times reports tamerlan tsarnaev's application for u.s. citizenship was under review because a background check showed he was interviewed by the fbi in 2011 for possible ties to chechen terrorists. he was cleared but his uncle says tamerlan tsarnaev had been radicalized in recent year
going house-to-house in boston, searching for dzhokhar tsarnaev. the second suspect in the bombing his uncle has spoken out, telling him it turn himself in now that his brother tamerlan is dead. eric shaw is in massachusets with the latest. >> reporter: if you lived in boston, chances are you got an e-mail extreme threat alert message, saying shelter in place, that is still in effect, not prevent employees from returning home, governor patrick saying if you go to work, they want you to go home, the city is basically paralyzed. severity is extreme, urgency they say is quote immediate, because dzhokhar tsarnaev is still on the loose. will get dark in boston, we may be back to what went on last night, that chase. and manhunt and gunfire. and ieds police say were thrown from his car he and his brother allegedly hijacked as they went from cambridge across river to watertown. police have been scouring houses in a 20 block area, searching basement, bedrooms and closets for any sign. police saying that there have been pursuing some leads. >> we're progressing through this neighborhood going do
, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a naturalized u.s. citizen, 19 years old, considered extremely dangerous. the hunt is focused, but not confined to a series of communities west of boston proper, including cambridge and watertown. 21 hours since the photo was first released, dzhokhar named on the loose. his older brother, his alleged co-conspirator in the bombing at the marathon died early this morning in a clash with police from which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now sp
is 19 years old. his name is dzhokhar tsarnaev. i apologize if i am mispronouncing your name. he has a massachusetts driver's license. he has been here over a year, has a student visa and is considered a legal, permanent resident of the united states. somehow that doesn't all add up. and he comes from the chechnya area of russia. manhunt underways inbot. we will do not key on top of it and keep you informed here on the "full-court press." >> this is "the bill press show." >> let me bring you up to date on the sequence of events. photos were released yesterday afternoon. they realized they had to get out of town. they needed a car to do so. they needed cash to do so. they surfaced last night robbing a 7-11 on the campus of mit, shooting an mit police officer who arrived to investigate that robbery, shot and killed him. car jacked a mercedes s.u.v. and the police started chasing them. they let the driver out, the owner of the s.u.v. out and took off for watertown with police in pursuit. they were throwing explosives out of the car during the car chase.
hospital bed dzhokhar tsarnaev faced a judge yesterday. he is charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and melissa's malicious destruction of property resulting in death. we're getting another look at where the bomber suspected bombers were standing at the marathon, take a look. you can see as his pictures of and closer, the suspect at the marathon last monday. he is in the white cap. his older brother to marry and the ctamerian tsarnaev is pictured in a black cat. he was killed last week in a shootout with police. >>johar tsarnaev has been communicating with investigators. he cannot speak with a bullet wound to his throat but he is answering questions through nodding and writing. at this point he is saying the brothers are acting alone and they turned into radical islam through internet videos. they had no contact with any the hottest groups overseas and they develop thereby making skills from the internet. >> and memorial service was held yesterday for liungzi lu and another victim krystle campbell was laid to rest earlier in the day. a
. and the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev shot dead. his brother dzhokhar escaped on foot even as police shut down neighborhoods. just about an hour ago all hell broke loose again as a neighbor in watertown called police and said "i see blood on the shed in my backyard." police responded. you may have seen it live on shepard smith. cars from everywhere converged on the site. there is a boat in the backyard with canvas covering the boat. and that is where the suspect now lies, wounded, according to the authorities. once again, it's a very difficult situation because of all of the explosive components here. don't know what he has. you go in, boom! , everybody goes up. this is a mark of a terrorist. this is what these people do. so, let's go to watertown. let's take you back there where fox news correspondent mike tobin is standing by as well as fox news producer chris laible. anything you can add to what i just said. >> explosion may be a strong word i describe them as pops. what they remind me of is the israeli bomb disposal robot that when they find a suspicious package the robot would approa
throughoue israel hospital dzhokhar march tsarnaev is now charged with using a weapon of mass destruction by means of explosive device. the white house says tsarnaev will not be treated as enemy combatant. >> we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. >> the 19-year-old remains in serious but stable condition. fbi agents say he has multiple injuries including gunshot wounds to the head, neck, legs and hand and spent considerable time in surgery friday night. in response to the arraignment. attorney general eric holder said in a statement, quote: although our investigation is ongoing today's charges bring successful end for a tragic week for the city of boston and for our country. meantime tsarnaev's life has been saved, guarded, and arraigned all in the same hospital where his brother tamerlan died and where a number of victims from last monday's blast continue to recover. >> recovery from this scij solid -- psychologic solid a marathon. as you heard from my rehabilitation physici
as radical gets. >>steve: have you seen this? the dramatic video of police closing in on dzhokhar tsarnaev? they used an infrared thermal imaging camera to pinpoint his exact location and movements inside the boat. >>brian: joining us with more on this technology taken from above, anna kooiman. >> good morning. they are stunning, these images. they were taken while taking tsarnaev into custody. you can see in the video released by the massachusetts state police, the 19-year-old in the boat, that image you see there is his body highlighted to thermal imaging. police were able to monitor his every movement because of this technology. now watch this. those big black puffs, those are explosions believed to be the flash grenades police threw at him. the company that makes the thermal cameras said the equipment worked exactly how it was supposed to. >> i think it was a real win they could look through the cover and see him lying inside the technology has been around for decades, but as you can see it keeps getting better and better. flare has more than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities.
that the community sort of begins to wrap its head around this, in so far as dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev were part of the communities in which they lived. one was a wrestler, one was a boxer. >> can you state it a little louder, please? >> i was saying how does the community begin to wrap its head around what has happened. given the fact that two of the suspects, dzhokah tsarnaev and his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, were very much part of the community in which they grew up. they went to local schools. one was competitive boxer, one was a wrestler. by all accounts they were you know, dzhokhar tsarnaev was seen as a nice guy, a shy guy in his high school. but liked. not an outcast by any means. you know how does a community begin to think of, begin to process something like this? >> well, it is what it is. you know people weren't, the fact that they are among us, humanity, some people who are, who are vicious and violent and morally deformed, we're aware of this. look at the people in texas are now experiencing the fact that you know, two prosecutors were murdered by a home-grown texan. people don't
." it is april 23rd. right to my first reads of the morning. >>> 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev who was shot in the head, neck, leg and hands according to newly released documents, has been officially charged with using a weapon of mass destruction that resulted in three deaths and more than 170 injuries. he's also been charged with malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. both charges carry the death penalty as a maximum sentence. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in a brief bedside session in the intensive care unit at boston's beth israel hospital. the appearance began when a magistrate judge asked a doctor whether he was alert saying you can rouse him. according to a transcript of the appearance, tsarnaev nodded for times to questions but spoke just one word. when asked can you afford a lawyer, he answered simply -- no. the government says it has photographic evidence placing tsarnaev and his brother at the scene of the bombings as well as physical evidence tying them to the attacks. in the complaint the fbi says that at 2:38 p.m. on the da
guys are brothers. the man at large is dzhokhar tsarna, tsarnaev and looking to confirm his origin. >> according to mike barnicle and "the boston globe" reporting one of the suspects has lived here for some time, receiving some sort of high school scholarship. >> yeah. the city of cambridge awards a scholarship $2,500 to cambridge high school seniors and others who want to pursue higher education. according to the globe, the man at large, the 19-year-old in the white hat, in 2011, so just two years ago, was the recipient of one of these scholarships. that indicates he has lived in the cambridge area for some time. >> another piece of information that we have picked up over the hours here is that at some time, any time now, the police in boston will be conducting a controlled detonation at the area of calm in charles gate. this is according to their twitter site. i guess if anybody in the area hears something, not to be upset by it because this is a controlled detonation probably, as pete williams was telling us, probably one of the explosives or grenades that were thrown out of the
suspect.19- year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. will be indicted by a grand jury. then the case is assigned to a district judge. a justice department official says tsarnaev will not be read his miranda rights because the government is invoking a public safety exception. that exception is triggered when police have an objectively reasonable need to protect the police or the public from immediate danger. tsarnaev will be questioned by a special federal interrogation team for high-value suspects. >> president barak obama and republicans used their weekly addresses to celebrate the resolve americans demonstrated after the attack on the boston marathon. in the address obama emphsized that "the world witnessed one sure and steadfast truth: americans refuse to be terrorized." >> ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain. stories of heroism and kindness; resolve and resilience; generosity and love. in the days to come, we will remain vigilant as a nation. and i have no doubt the city of boston and its surrounding communities will continue to respond in the same
. the city is searching for 19-year-old marathon bombing dzhokhar tsarnaev. they are going door-to-door in watertown where they say the search is 60, to 70% complete. tracy: authorities are planning a contained explosion at a location in cambridge this afternoon. as you recall at this point a second suspect was killed last night in a shootout in with police. the suspects are believed to be brothers from the russian region in -- but both lived in the united states for years. adam: president obama has been tracking the boston manhunt from the white house. rich edson joins us with more on that. rich? >> the white house at this point says it doesn't want to micromanage the situation going on in boston right now. we do have more information about the older brother, the first suspect killed last evening. tham tam, did according to -- tamerlan tsarnaev, according to u.s. fox news returned from a united states from a trip to russia. the source did not know or could not tell fox news how long he was outside the united states. feds are continuing to chrome all travel and communications co
on interactions with the hospitalized dzhokhar tsarnaev, they suspected that the two acted alone. connell: but in that magazine -- joining us is a professor from nyu law. how about this intelligence that is coming out? >> it feels just right to me. fear right after 9/11 would be that they would be sleeper cells. the real threat comes from people who self radicalized. dagen: this is equally frightening, if not more frightening. the fbi was told by russia to look into the elder brother and we did not have a grasp. >> absolutely right. we are already learning, just as you said, that there have been a couple evidence data points that were probably lost but authorities along the way. we are learning that some of the brothers attended and objected to the more mainstream peaceful message coming from the pulpit. connell: may be unfair, but at the same time, when you are here in new york at the local level in something similar came in, and about new york city, is there something that should have been done differently? >> i will have to learn a lot more about what really happened in boston before i
tonight that dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, they learned to build pressure cooker bombs over the internet, and were motivated by a desire to defend islam because of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. now, that early reporting may prove to be wrong. it may prove that the suspect retracts those statements later or maybe he's lying or he might be confused. but there is a small but significant cornerstone to build from that was not there before. we have left the realm of pure, complete speculation inside which would be frankly irresponsible to address questions of motives in the first place. in the case of dzhokhar tsarnaev even as we learn more about him and his life leading up to the bombing and what he is telling investigators, the question of why is intensely mysterious. if you spend some time on his twitter page as i did on the day it was first reported that he was a suspect, you'll find a teenager who mostly seems interested in stuff like weed, hip hop, girls, cars. it does not read like the twitter feed of someone who has completely devot
square where the bomb exploded one week ago. meantime, in a boston hospital bed, dzhokhar tsarnaev faced his initial court appearance before a federal magistrate from his hospital bed, where the judge ruled that he was alert enough to understand those two charges which potentially carry the death penalty. it was exactly one week ago at the conclusion of the boston marathon last week that the twin bombs went off. the bombs that were allegedly placed there by dzhokhar tsarnaev and his older brother. and the complaint describes vividly the surveillance video that shows tsarnaev placing his knapsack on the ground just before the first explosion. a few seconds after -- i'm sorry. virtually every head turns to the east toward the finish line and stares in that direction of the first explosion in apparent bewilderment and alarm. bomber two, tsarnaev, virtually alone among the individuals in front of the restaurant appears calm. a few seconds later the second bomb blast goes off and the rest is history. tsarnaev will face a probable cause hearing sometime next month. public defenders have agreed
to do it with the names. dzhokhar tsarnaev telling authorities how and why they planned the attack. >> good morning. dzhokhar tsarnaev remains in serious condition here but now he is facing serious charges as well. the use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death. he was arraigned from his hospital bed before a federal magistrate who determine he was alert, mentally competent and lucid. and now we know he has begun to communicate. he was able to nod during this hearing and he said one word -- "no" -- when asked if he could afford a lawyer. court papers line out the time saying tsarnaev was caught in the area before the bombing 11 minutes before and was seen fiddling with his cell phone shortly before the blast. tsarnaev is communicating with authorities revealing the internet provided a lot of information on this attack and there was no foreign help. sources tell abc that tsarnaev claims they had no direct financing from governments or rogue groups -- or rogue groups overseas, and that the younger brother may not have known about this
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p
ofpolice the remaining suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, lockdown of the boston metro are now allowed to leave police also say there is no we just learned at a press briefing that bombing suspect jahharr sarnieev has an extensive manhunt.that lockdown. that lock-down was lifted police say jah-harr has been on the run since early this morning after a lengthy suburban boston. after that.people in the entire boston metro area were told to stay in their homes. mass transit was shut-down. the other suspect in the boston marathon bombing.is jah-har's older brother tamerlin.he died in that gunfight with police. the two brothers. also, that he is answering the pressing questions and one of the concerns that we have with this is why this is taking so long. that there could be a suicide best on this person that a suicide-apparel vest... and the brothers have used explosives overnight and early this morning during that confrontation with police. that is for things stand right now. and what we are not sure they have been exchanging but there have been shots fired. and that is the very latest. >> pam: let
-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, wanted for the deadly attack at the boston marathon, was driven away by the police just moments ago after being cornered in a boat in the back of a house in watertown. you're looking at live pictures of that boat. that is a boat in which he was captured. anderson cooper will have the latest in boston in a moment. first, we go to eyewitness bob goodman who saw all the drama unfold in the last few minutes. mr. goodman, i understand you witnessed this end game with this suspect. tell me what you saw. >> [ inaudible ]. >> can you hear me, mr. goodman? seem to have a problem with bob goodman. we may go to anderson first and come back to mr. goodman when that connection is secure. obviously an extremely dramatic development in the last few minutes. tell me how it unfolded. >> dramatic development indeed. around 8:44, 8:45, our reporter on the scene, elizabeth cohen, saw movement, heard police officers break out into applause, neighbors asked the police did you get him. one police officer said yes. just about a minute after that, the boston police department tweeted out saying
year- old suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, had fled on foot this morning and was still at large. there were evacuations of buildings near where he was believed to be cornered in a boat stored in a back yard. federal, state and local authorities lined the nearby streets, watching and waiting for an outcome. >> suarez: for more from boston about the latest we turn to farah stockman of the boston and two of our public media colleagues are joining us by telephone from watertown ... what did you see this evening as it entered the final chapter in the capture of dzhokar tsarnaev? >> well, this has been an extraordinary culmination of a day. for a longtime today, for several minutes, four, five, six, seven eight vehicles passed by this area. i'm on nichol street in east watertown. they sped to franklin street. at franklin street they made a left and there they were joined by other police forces surrounding a home there where the individual they were looking for, they felt was hiding. he was indeed hiding underneath a tarp. there was an efforts, i was told, by two police officers aknown mussy -- an
threat. >> let me ask you some particulars about the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. appare apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that he is in serious condition, but he's stable. and there are investigators prepared to interview him when he's able to be interviewed. >> the question about him coming onto the radar of the fbi two years ago, he was interviewed, he was tracked at the request of the russians, according to federal officials. that's questions now, for you and authorities in massachusetts, have to raise some concerns whether something was missed here. >> well, sure. there's a whole process here, and i think it was his brother, by the way, who was questioned by the fbi -- >> yes, forgive me, correct. >> a whole host of questions, david, that you have, that i have, more to the point that
. >> one lawmaker strongly against charging dzhokhar tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. adam schiff, a boston area. thank you for joining us. i'm sure your heart is going out to your native city here. so congressman, take us through this. should he be tried as an enemy of the united states, an enemy combatant? can he be prosecuted in that manner? >> well, i don't think we have really seen any evidence yet that would support treating him as an enemy combatant. this is somebody who is a u.s. citizen, arrested on u.s. soil for acts committed on u.s. soil. really far appeal from the paradigm of an enemy combatant, captured on an enemy battlefield. we don't have any evidence he's part of an al qaeda cell or been foreign directioned here. it's possible that could materialize but i think it is very hasty tore calling for his treatment as an enemy combatant. moreover, we haven't had much success in trying enemy combatants in our military commissions. criminal courts have been much more successful in the expeditious prosecution of terrorists. so this rush to want to proclaim him an enemy combatant and

details today about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. ja h dzhokhar tsarnaev is listed in serious condition after he was taken into custody. the 19-year-old was found hiding in a boat parked outside a watertown home and there are new suspicions his older brother, who died in the shootout with police early friday morning, could have received terrorist training or support abroad. an official familiar with the matter tells nbc news that a foreign government has expressed concern back in 2011 that tamerlan tsarnaev could have ties to terrorism. the official says the fbi investigated but found no such links and reported the findings back to that foreign government. let's bring in msnbc analyst and former hostage negotiator james cavanagh. james, thanks for joining me again and great work yesterday through all of the mayhem, but i'm curious about the frequency with which we get a warning from a foreign government about someone who is here in our country that potentially has ties to terrorism. >> you know, that stuff does come in to federal agencies all the time really, alex.
him later today. the dramatic 102-hour manhunt for dzhokhar tsarnaev ended in a backyard last night. for the first time, look at this. we're getting a look at a surveillance image showing the very moment when he climbed into that family's boat in their backyard. surveillance cameras everywhere now, right? look at this. we believe that he hid out there for hours. after yesterday's early-morning police shootout, about 1:00 a.m. overnight, thursday into friday, that shot, and killed his brother, it was only after this homeowner noticed that something was wrong in his backyard, that police got the break they needed. keep in mind, he was hiding out in an area that was just beyond the perimeter the boston pd had set up. for roughly two and a half hours last night, cops had him surrounded. gunfire and explosions broke out. cops very cautious, fearing me might have yet another bomb. at least seven had said to be recovered. they were hoping to take him alive as we talked about yesterday. so they could get some much-needed answers among other reasons. and then at approximately 8:45 p.m., look
an answer to now lies with 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, a naturalized u.s. citizen who's recovering in the hospital. namely, what was behind the attack at the boston marathon. terrorism expert neil smeltser at uc berkeley says the first questions investigators will likely ask tsarnaev will have to do with the motive. >> first psychological is is this some kind of a wayward nut like columbine or some of the school shooters apparently have been? what are the linkages? where's this guy -- who's this guy been linked up to? >> reporter: investigators will also want to know if the 19-year-old suspect planted any other explosives anywhere or if others were involved in the plot. the director of the american civil liberties union reacted to the administration's decision not to immediately mirandize tsarnaev by saying, "every criminal defendant is entitled to be read miranda rights." the public safety exception should be read narrowly and applies only when there's a continued threat to public safety. denial of rights is un-american. the man known as the underwear bomber was also questioned by
